Unhealthy Habit? - Poem by Sophia White

All this reading can’t be good
For a little girl like me.
My mind always distant in
Those lands of reverie.

These books are so enchanting
So difficult to leave
I can’t help but watch enraptured
As the storytellers weave.

But can it be so healthy
Even though they say
“Everyone should read a little
Every single day! ”

At that - perhaps I’d better take
Advice - read just a little.
Instead of inhaling books
Like sleep, water, and vittles.

But if I did, I just know
In a week I’d die
From Book Withdrawal disease!
I dare not even try!

I can’t just put my books away
No matter how unhealthy.
Guess I’ll just let my mind wander
Forget about being healthy.
